The First Tudor Rose Dish 1936 - 1953

The gold coin embedded in the center of the first dish commemorates the death of George V. Inscriptions record the royal events of those years, including the accession and abdication of Edward VIII, and the Coronations of George VI and Queen Elizabeth IL

The critical years of the Second World War are summarised succinctly and unemotionally.

Post-war events include the first meeting of the United Nations in the Methodist Hall Westminster, and the exhibition of the Tobacco Box in Lincoln’s Inn Hall for the 1951 Festival of Britain.

There are several medallions embedded in the dish, and engravings of the Coats of Arms of both Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II.
